Polymer Club

UN Goal 9: Industry, Innovation and InfrastructureUN Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and ProductionUN Goal 17: Partnerships for the Goals

The Polymer Club is an exciting and vibrant industry consortium with many international companies participating in our activities. It was launched in 2013 at the University of Warwick and its aim is to promote research and education in the areas of polymer and colloid science by bringing together academic groups from Warwick University and industries with an interest in polymer and colloid science worldwide.

To achieve this key objective the Polymer Club organises (bi)-annual meetings, which are free to attend for industrial participants.
